Small investments make great businesses
Findfunds.pl is an equity crowdfunding platform, which was created to bridge the gap that exists in the market obtaining financing for companies that are at the early stage of development, when their traction is not yet large enough to convince institutional investors to enter the capital.
FindFunds.pl also responds to the needs of investors seeking new methods of investing free cash. So far, investing in companies at an early stage was reserved for large investors, such as business angels, venture capital funds and private equity. It is to these entities guided by the innovative, exciting, forward-looking projects that seek financing for development. At the same time, individual investors, holding significant funds, they were deprived of the opportunity to benefit from investing in growth companies and earn on the growth of their value. What more they did not even have access to them, because there was no way to reach many investors simultaneously.
FindFunds.pl solves the problem, both startups and investors, offering a platform through which the company can reach through a single profile to hundreds of thousands of users interested in this form of investment. Through FindFunds.pl company may launch a campaign, within which he is able to present key information about the company and the project with the profile of the campaign and provide materials allowing for verification of the company by investors for potential investments and experience of the team.
